Input needed! The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, through the generous Wimpfheimer-Guggenheim Fund, will launch a project to develop free nutrition education resources for health practitioners working in developing countries. The first phase of the collection will focus on Central America and will be available on eatrightPRO.org by 2016. Thus, survey input is needed from registered dietitian nutritionists, registered nurses, pediatricians, family practitioners, physician assistants and other public health workers with field experience in Central America.
The goal is to assess needs and to share materials and tools that would aid in the success of international medical missions and humanitarian assistance efforts. Please consider sharing your experiences, expertise and examples of resources — or forwarding this email to your colleagues — to begin building an open-access resource collection for international nutrition education! Complete the survey here:
Survey respondents are also invited to submit examples of materials (e.g. handouts, posters, visual aids) they have developed or used in their nutrition education efforts. Note: Submissions will remain the property of the original source (survey respondent) and may be used by the Academy solely to inform and guide direction of the pilot project.
